We have plenty of opportunities for those who enjoy communications and promotions, securing or providing sponsorships, finding or donating gifts for auction, mailing invitations, participating in ticket sales, and welcoming our parishioners, friends and many special guests at the event. If you can help, please contact Cat Parkhill at or 952-457-3685.

150th Anniversary Mass

As part of our 150th Anniversary, there will be a special Mass offered by Archbishop Bernard Hebda at 11AM on Sunday, November 4th at St. Louis Church. Due to the celebration of this special Mass and the large volume of people attending, there will be no 12:30PM Mass on November 4th. Please mark your calendars!

Monday Bible Study

Join Father Sajdak and fellow parishioners in a five-part study of the Book of Revelation, perhaps the strangest book in the New Testament. We will look at such questions as: Who wrote this book? What is its purpose? How many prophecies in the book have come true? Study sessions will be held every Monday in October at 6PM in the parish hall. See you there!

Tuesday Organ Recital Series

Our 2018 – 2019 Tuesday Organ Recital Series has begun! Please join us Oct. 16th for a recital featuring Nicholas Schmelter, Director of Worship and Congregational Life at First Presbyterian Church in Caro, Michigan. The music begins at approximately 12:35PM, right after the 12:10 Mass, and lasts about half an hour. View the full schedule for this season hereFor more about our recitals, music program and music at Sunday 11AM masses, visit the Music page of our website or “like” our music department Facebook page here.

World Mission Sunday – October 21

This year, we celebrate World Mission Sunday with the theme Witnessing Faith through the Hearts of Youth, highlighting the passion of the youth in the St. Vincent de Paul Society at Jesucristo Resucitado, Venezuela, our archdiocesan mission parish. Please be as generous as you are able and help support over 1100 mission dioceses worldwide. There will be envelopes available in the back of the church and at the exits if you wish to contribute.

Welcome, Father Roland!

We are happy to announce that a fourth Marist priest has joined the staff at St. Louis, King of France. An insert with details about Father Roland A. Lajoie, S.M. can be found in the Sept 2nd bulletin or by clicking here. Please extend a warm welcome to Father Roland as he joins our Little French Church.

Eucharistic Ministers

St. Louis Church is very much in need of Eucharistic Ministers to help out at all of the weekend Masses. If you would be willing to volunteer an hour of your time while you are at Sunday Mass it would be most appreciated. As our faith teaches us, we are called to serve. Being a Eucharistic Minister does not require that you be a reader at Mass. Please call or email the parish office at 651-224- 3379 or

Free Parking

Ample free parking is available for weekend Masses (as well as those which fall on “bank” holidays) just steps from St. Louis Church in the Andersen Human Services Building parking ramp across 10th Street. Enter through the “Contract” entrance from Minnesota Street. You can descend to street level either through the stairway at the corner of 10th and Minnesota, or by the elevators located in the opposite (northwest) corner of each level. Ascending back to your parking level can only be done via the elevator. If the barrier is down at the exit, approach slowly and the gate will open. Note that the church also has a small parking lot off 10th Street, and parking is allowed right next to the church on 10th Street during weekday masses.

Any Changes?

If you have changed your address, telephone number or email address, or you wish to receive or discontinue contribution envelopes, please call the parish office to update your records and preferences at 651-224-3379. Note that if you’ve been a member for a few years we may not have an email address on file for you yet.
